A variety of businesses are represented, with each portrait featuring the business owner holding an example of their work.

Included in the series are silversmiths, bakers, personalised giftware makers, florists, cheese makers and butchers.

Adam said: “Some businesses have recently started whilst others are in their third generation, but what links each together is a shared commitment to craftsmanship and a specialist approach to their work – something that has been recognised by the range of awards some of the businesses have received.”

Participating businesspeople are:
